Mission


Buffalo Outreach and Community Assistance (BOCA) is an international public health organization that recruits students and dental professionals to promote dental education and implement free dental care in those areas of the world that lack adequate access to care. The word BOCA, which means "mouth" in Spanish, signifies our dedication to oral health care, as well as our goal of advocating for more universal access to dental care worldwide.
